Yea, there is welding to do on the interior and I really don't want paint on those parts. I need to decide whether I want to paint the cage anthracite to match the wheels or satin black. I'm leaning towards satin black right now but who knows, it might change.

This thread makes me wish I had:

A) More money
B) More time
C) Started on one of these about three or four years ago


Amazing looking build. Subscribed to this thread.

What you planning on painting the bottom with? Going for the same paint color or something thicker and more resistant to the elements?

I will be laying down some anti-chip, then I will prime it and I think I will be painting it with a dark charcoal metalic single stage as we have a gallon of it laying around from my brothers wheels.

The car shouldn't see much weather besides occasional rain on roadtrips.
